Cavs Notes: Rose, Shumpert, Thomas, Thompson

Neither Derrick Rose nor Iman Shumpert has appeared in a game for the Cavaliers since November, and it sounds like both players will remain sidelined for at least a little longer.

While there was an expectation that Rose may return to action for the Cavaliers during their current road trip, that won’t happen after all, head coach Tyronn Lue said today. As Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com writes, it sounds like Shumpert’s return isn’t imminent either.

“We thought he was (closer),” Lue said of Shumpert, who is recovering from a knee injury. “He had some soreness in his foot or whatever.”

As the club waits for its injured players to get healthy, here are a few more notes out of Cleveland:

    The cavs pace of play is too fast for Triston but I think he could help Blake griffin out down low with rebounding and are similar body types

      Clippers play faster than the Cavs from all the advanced stats I’ve read. Problem is Thompson can’t score, shoot or block shots. Plays solid defense and can rebound but is a horrible offensive liability. He is a Kardashian now too so don’t expect him to improve

    What deal would you include the Brooklyn First?
    I say No for DJ.

    Yes for – Cousins, PG-13 (neither on the block tho)
    Maybe for – Drummond or Gasol (If they took both Thompson & Shumpert)

    Don’t see another player that’s available that also provides defense.

      I’m not of the allusion that the Nets’ pick is going to turn into a superstar, because I’d be surprised if it ends up at the very top of the draft.

      That said, if it can even get a solid player (Collin Sexton is my go to example), I don’t have interest in trading it for anyone who could potentially be a rental, unless it was almost a foregone conclusion that they’d re-sign. That’s not even to mention the fact that no one available seems like a player that would really push them over the hump past the Warriors. (Even if there was, it would cost a lot more than a mid-lottery pick and a few bad contracts.)

      LeBron still won’t commit to them long-term, and even though I still believe he’ll stick around there, I’m not overly interested in going all-in until he does. Until then, I’d be more interested in the possibility of getting a fairly intriguing young player.

    As a Piston fan, there is no way they trade Drummond for the nets pick and Thompson. Their season would be over, and right now, they are the sixth seed. The only way the Cavs win the championship this year is with Boogie or PG 13. If the pick can get one of those guys, do it. If not, just work with what you got.

    I was hoping Livingston would say whether James would approve of TT being traded.
